21,543 trees planted – We take stock

“Root with us – the future belongs to the trees”. This statement touched the team of Williams ButchersTable and moved them to commit to OneTreePlanted from March 2020 to March 2022. Together with our business partner and exclusive meat supplier LUMA Delikatessen in Schaffhausen, we developed a concept.

During these two years, LUMA has planted one tree in the Peruvian rainforests for every package of meat shipped, thus reforesting a stately forest. Williams ButchersTable has planted one tree in Ethiopia for every table and bill. In this way, our guests have not only benefited from the fact that we offer only the highest quality meats, but that we are working together to support a strong, healthy planet.

The commitment and mission of OneTreePlanted convinced us immediately: the globally active reforestation company has been able to plant more than 1.5 million trees around the world since its launch in 2014. LUMA Delicatessen and Williams ButchersTable have made a small contribution to sowing seeds for future generations.

OneTreePlanted works selectively and with local forestry teams around the globe. Each tree donor can decide for themselves on which patch of the earth they would like to plant their tree. Our coffee supplier Desta Daniel Kebede, founder of “Desta’s Coffee”, works closely with smallholder farmers in Ethiopia and so we at Williams ButchersTable chose Ethiopia for our commitment.

In support of an even better coffee crop in the poor but nutrient-rich soils of East Africa, we have planted the region’s signature willow leaf acacia, flat crown acacia, Australian silver oak and African wild olive. Sprouts of mango, papaya and avocado perennials form the trellis.

Our conclusion after two years: We have planted a total of 21,543 trees during this time. This was only possible because our guests remained loyal to us, especially during this difficult time – together we can achieve a lot! We would like to express our sincere thanks for this.
